Beef Pot Roast in Crock Pot / Slow Cooker

READY IN: 12hrs 25mins
Recipe by Chef floWer

This is my first roast in a crock pot, I didn't get to try this as I don't eat red meat but the family enjoyed the beef and so did our dinner guest. I served it with Rooty Veg Roast and steam broccoli.

Yum! Only change I made was to add a teaspoon of garlic powder at the start because I love a hint of garlic in gravy and reduced the cooking time to 1hr high 4 low because I was using a smaller 1Kg roast and didn't start cooking until early afternoon. The idea of blending the onions celery was great and along with the juices from the meat made made a very tasy gravy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Trim all excess fat from the roast.
  2. Combine 1/4 cup flour, salt and pepper on a flat plate. Coat meat with the flour mixture. Heat large pan with oil and brown the beef.
  3. Place onion and celery in slow cooker, then pour in the liquid stock and top with roast (cut roast in half if it's unable to fit),.
  4. Cover and cook on low setting for 8-10 hours. Depending on how well you enjoy the beef.
  5. Remove beef from the slow cooker and allow to sit until you make the gravy (about 10 mins).
  6. To make gravy pour all the juices from the slow cooker into a pot and puree with a hand wand. Put the meat juices on a very low heat on the stove top. In a separate bowl mix flour and water until liquid paste. Slowly add the flour and water mixture into the gravy pot, mix the gravy until it thickens.
  7. Slice beef and serve with roasted root vegetables and gravy.
